All Game News

NPD’s Matt Piscatella pointed to the USA sales ranking of the games for the month of January 2022. We can see the overall ranking (PC and console) and the partial ones for PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.

First of all, we get to see the ranking of best-selling games on all platforms. The ranking is based on physical and digital data (eShop, Steam, PS Store, Xbox Store). The ranking is not drawn up on the basis of the number of copies sold but on the basis of sales in dollars.

  1. Pokémon Arceus Legends (excluding digital data)
  2. Call of Duty Vanguard
  3. Monster Hunter Rise
  4. Madden NFL 22
  5. God of War (2018)
  6. Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales
  7. FIFA 22
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (digital data excluded)
  9. Rainbow Six Extraction
  10. Battlefield 2042
  11. Pokémon Shining Diamond / Shining Pearl (digital data excluded)
  12. Far Cry 6
  13. Minecraft
  14. NBA 2K22
  15. Mario Party Superstars (digital data excluded)
  16. Animal Crossing New Horizons (digital data excluded)
  17. Forza Horizon 5
  18. Halo Infinite
  19. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (digital data excluded)
  20. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War

As you can see, the overall software ranking includes all the most important titles from the past months and years. As always, Nintendo games lack digital data (as the Kyoto-based company doesn’t share it), so it’s possible that some of these games actually rank higher. The fact that, even with physical data alone, Pokémon Arceus Legends comes first, is indicative of the level of success recorded by the game.
